March Warp-up(April TBR)

March was a nice, quiet month. That means that I was able to read a good number(11) of books. Here’s is a look at some of my favorite titles:

Non-ARCS

I have been trying to read more books from my own bookshelf. I wasn’t able to do that in January and February but luckily, I March was different. I read three non-ARCs.

  • On Becoming by Toke Makinwa
  • The Hairdresser of Harare by Tendai Huchu
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

ARCs

Here are some of my favorite reads:

  • Impossible Dilemma by Netta Newbound
  • Lioness of Morocco by Julia Drosten
  • The Many by Nathan Field
  • The Trophy Child by Paula Daly

 

  • The Follower by Koethi Zan
  • The Escape by C.L Taylor
  • Say Nothing by Brad Parks
  • The Lost Children by Helen Phifer

 

Favourite Book of the Book

when-dancedWhen We Danced at the end of the Pier by Sandy Taylor-  This reminded me of my favorite book, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. The setting and time period had a number of similarities. Both books gave me characters that I still think of. Characters who I grew attached to. Characters whose stories broke my heart and made me cry. Part of the story was set in Ireland and I found myself thinking of Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt. However, although the book reminded me of my favourite books, it was quite unique in its own ways. The writing and characterization made it different and the story was one of the most beautiful ones that I have ever read. I have found a new favorite book. This is a book that I will not stop recommending to everyone. It is the most beautiful, heart-breaking story that I have read in a while and I want everyone to read it.

 

APRIL TBR

So I went on a NetGalley request spree and ended up with quite a number of books on my TBR. That means that April will be mainly for ARCs. Here are the books that I hope to read:

  • My Husband The Stranger by Rebecca Done
  • Last Breath by Robert Bryndza
  • Here and Gone by Haylen Beck
  • Lie to Me by Jess Ryder
  • Traitor in the Family by Nicholas Searle
  • Ten Birthdays by Terry Wilkinson
  • Want You Gone by Chris Brookmyre
  • The Killer on the Wall by Emma Kavanagh
  • The Girl from Tyne by Melody Sachs
  • Linden Hill by Gloria Naylor
  • One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline

 

I hope that you had a wonderful month. Happy April. Cheers!
